Introduction. The relevance of the supply of ammunition to the Navy ships is investigated. It is revealed that this process is a complex organizational and technical task and is one of the most important components supporting the combat readiness of the fleet. The previously accumulated domestic and Soviet experience in organizing the supply of ships in combat service, as well as the capabilities of modern technologies, robotic loading and transportation facilities for organizing the provision of naval ships in various hydrological and meteorological conditions, are considered. The possibility of diversification of vehicles in the delivery of ammunition to fleet ships as part of modern logistics systems.
Methods. The analysis of the use of various modes of transport to provide ships with ammunition from the arsenals of the Navy. The most widely used in the process of providing ships is road transport. The main shortcomings, the use of road transport to provide ships, and the main ways to solve them are identified. Expert measurements identified and evaluated the main risks of the process of transporting ammunition to ships. The processing of expert opinions made it possible to determine the value of the priority risk number (PRN) when performing collateral tasks. The necessity of developing a calculation algorithm based on a mathematical model that allows assessing the emerging risks and their consequences when delivering ammunition to ships to compensate for their impact on humans and the environment is revealed. All this can make it possible to predict the probability of providing ammunition for ships in real time.
Conclusion. Firstly, one of the most effective areas of guaranteed supply of ammunition to ships, which can compensate for the emerging risks, is the ability to diversify the delivery of ammunition by various means of transport, depending on the remoteness of the ship, the time it takes to provide it, and the climatic and other conditions that create the risks. Secondly, robotic ammunition delivery vehicles will be able to improve the functioning of the existing system of missile and artillery technical support for the Navy ships as a whole, increase the reliability of delivery, and will also significantly reduce the risks that arise in the process of delivering ammunition to naval ships.
